Very cool shot. I love the colors, and the blur adds a different dimension. Well done!!!

Top 20 and a personal best. Congratulations! :)

Congratulations on your top 20 finish. This is a very interesting study in that the viewer begins to examine and fails to find a consistency of focal points. I suspect that even a natural plain washed out sky would have served this image better. However, it remains a visual treat.

I like the angle and perspective. The rail line leads the eyes well. Was this done with a LensBaby lens, or just some interesting editing? Nice colors. I give it an 8.

Nice color. I like the tracks to anywhere!

Great colors and composition, but perhaps a little too much smoothing. You have lost a lot of detail in the trees.

Wow...like a postcard...beautiful!

The blur looks very unrealistic. An over-processed shot, I think.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2006 01:02:46 PM
Interesting blurring effect on the trees, but a little too strong for my taste. Otherwise a very strong composition. I think I also would have liked the right hand rail better disappearing right at the corner rather than above it.

Very very cool. It seems spotty though on the processing, for the most part it is brilliant, but there are some spots that just seem out of place. The trees at about 1 o'clock look blurred then erased, and then the bushes right beside the tracks at about 8 o'clock look the same. The blur itself seems an awesome teqnique, but the opacity in the erased spots should be brought down just a little. I hope I havent assumed the wrong things, and an overall awesome photo.

Like the colors and composition; sharpening seems kind of uneven/unlikely in the foliage.

*falls over from the awesome*

Wow. Just...... WOW.
One of the most gorgeous images I've seen.

I like what you've done with the colors and the subjext but question the tree on the left that is still in focus vs. the others at the same distance. I think that it distracts a little from the overall subjext of the tracks and blending. Hope you don't think this rude.

This is wonderful! Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice color, simple image. Traditional leading lines. I like what you've done here. One thing I do find distracting is what appears to be selective use of gaussian blur on the trees in the background. The bare patch of tree that is sharp (couple of areas, one left and one right bg) make it evident that some manipulation was going on. Not that it's not know in general, but when it jumps out at you, well...it's distracting, that's all. With all of that said - I still like it overall. :D Good luck in the challenge.

Thrilling Colors & Great Usage of Selective Focus! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the softness of the background and the angle of the tracks... it leads your eyes into the woods that look enchanted... nicely done! :-)

A storybook kind of shot. It's intriguing but perhaps a bit overprocessed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 07:56:43 PM
Ooo cool kinda impressionist looks good
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 06:40:22 PM
Nice colors. However, the rails lead me right into the background which is quite blurred either by intent or accident?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 06:32:13 PM
I love the colors and the sharpness of the tracks, but the blur of the sky and trees just strikes me as odd. Especially the blur on the bush on the left. Parts of the bush seem sharp and others blurred. I dunno, maybe it's just me....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A bit over the top on the processing for my tastes, but excellent composition

There is something unsettling about the blurring in this picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A little overdone in PP IMO - but quite nice anyway...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think I'd like this better if it wasn't so blurry in center area. Wonderful colors, though
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great colors and a nice composition. I am kind of puzzled as to why some of the shot is tack sharp and some of it is blurred. Were you going for this effect? To me it looks kind of arbitrary.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 10:44:14 AM
Not sure if I like the blur. Looks fake. However, the composition and colours are great.
